The views of Spofford Pond begin right from the front door of this comfy Cape, as it’s just a short shot to the patio doors that frame the water beyond. The deck provides another spot from which to consider the pond’s calm. The house has an open floor plan, with a smaller kitchen that has oak cabinets, granite counters, and a two-seat breakfast bar. Off the kitchen is a small bedroom now used as an office. There are also pond views from the dining room, which has a see-through fireplace leading to the living room. The rest of the first floor includes a small bedroom off the kitchen that is now used an office, and a half bath.
The second-floor master easily accommodates a king-sized bed and has ample closets. One thing to note: The room has screened patio doors looking on the pond, but there is no deck. The bath has a pink Jacuzzi, a separate shower, and a vanity. The other bedroom has pond views and a good closet.
The family bath has red tile floors and a bathtub with a shower. The finished basement has patio doors to the pond and a shower and half-bath. There is a two- car garage. Unusual for Boxford, the property is only a quarter-acre, but is grandfathered in the town’s 2-acre zoning. The house has well water. Listing broker Karen Neveof Keller Williams in Topsfield is holding an open house Sunday from 2 to 4 p.m.
